Is it free to be homeschooled?
Generally, you can assume that homeschooling costs more than a public school education and less than a private school.
If you had to, you could homeschool practically for free using public resources like libraries, PBS shows, museums, the internet, and hand-me-down educational supplies.
What qualifications do you need to homeschool your child?
Parent Qualifications. The parent providing primary instruction should have at least a high school diploma or GED. Parents who have committed offenses that would disqualify them from teaching other people’s children should not be permitted to homeschool.
How many hours a day do you have to home school?
While most states require 180 school days a year, don’t compare a “typical” homeschool/independent study day to a “typical” traditional school day. In a traditional school setting, a child is in attendance for 6-7 hours a day, but not every minute of that is time spent actually teaching.
Where do I start with homeschooling?
To get started homeschooling, you’ll need to:
- Review the homeschool laws for your state (or country).
- Understand parent qualifications for your area.
- Figure out your child’s learning style.
- Choose a homeschool learning method.
- Select curriculum or courses.
- Deschool your child (and yourself!).
